Last August, we spent 3 nights at Blacksmith's Inn. The location is spectacular, right in the middle of North York Moors Park, the timing was right (if you can, it's worth visiting when the heather is in bloom in late summer/early fall), management and staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms clean and spacious (we booked the garden rooms which have a sitting area right outside. There is both a pub and a good restaurant, which didn't try to be too fancy. In the area, there are great hikes and it can serve as the perfect base for exploring the moors or the Whitby coastline (the coastal walk to Robin Hood's Bay which takes half a day is stunning). No complaints at all.
